That's a great composition Ed! Looks like an "all you can eat buffet" for the Egret!

That's an amazing shot Ed. Am I correct in believing that the egret cannot pluck any minnows from the pond as it flies? I'm assuming it's about to land so that it can start snapping up those tasty morsels in its beak.

They will catch them on the fly as in these examples.

All are superb but that last one is spectacular !

The relationship Ed has with these Snowy Egrets, I'm beginning to think that there is something Ed. has not told us about himself :
